Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My acer netbook just simply stopped working. It was plugged in, as it always is, and when I touched the start button to wake it up (as I always keep it on), the computer was dead. I switched outlets in order to check the electricity, but that made no difference.

Hold the power button down for 10 seconds then press it again- that should force a full shutdown and restart- if that does not work, you may need to contact Acer or whoever holds your repair warranty for a repair.

Set the bios password and forgotten whaat it is


You need to preform a Acer Aspire One BIOS Recovery

instructions here: http://macles.blogspot.com/2008/08/acer-aspire-one-bios-recovery.html

Summary:
You need a flash drive formatted as fat (Right click on drive. Click format. Select fat for file system. Press start)
Down load the bios 3310 from here: http://macles.blogspot.com/p/acer-aspire-one-bios.html
Extract all files. Put both FLASHIT.EXE and the BIOS file with FD suffix in the root directory of the flash drive. The files must not be in a folder. Rename the BIOS file to ZG5IA32.FD before proceeding. It only works with this exact filename.

Make sure laptop is off and has battery and power plugged in.

Plug in flash drive to netbook. Press Fn and Esc simultaneously, keep them pressed and press the power button. Release Fn+Esc after a few seconds. The power button starts blinking at this point. Press it once. The netbook will now access the files on the flash drive and initiate flashing the BIOS. After a while the power button stops blinking, and the netbook reboots by itself. Wait patiently.

If it doesn't reboot, but keeps blinking, wait at least a few minutes before turning it off, and try again.

I cannot wake my Apsire One from stand-by


Try updating your operating system .....if that doesn't work I'd save all files, format the hard drive, and reinstall windows ......or .....you could just disable the power save features while plugged in.

I am unable to wake up my netbook from sleep... pressing the power button or anything else on the keyboard seems to do nothing.


Try having it plugged in and press and hold the power button for 10-15 seconds. If it is stuck in sleep mode this may force it to shutdown and then it will hopefully start up next time you press the power button.

16gb ipod touch 1st gen sleep wake button doesn't work.


Connect to itunes and do a restore from there. Assuming you can switch the thing on! Mine is the same, It started with the wake button only working sometimes, then by itself and eventually squeezing the case near the wake button would do the trick. I did try to fix but without success. These are very fiddly and the wake button disconnects from the main board when the case is opened making it very hard to test.
When not in use I keep the brightness at minimum and set the auto lock to never.
Good luck

Acer aspire one touchpad right button not working


you can try using the function key ( fn ) and the touch pad key on my acer it is the F7 key hold the fn key and press and release the touch pad key that will turn the touch pad mouse off and on also goto control panel / mouse and try switch primary and secondary see if that will make the right button work if not its probly hardware related and your best bet is to keep the external mouse going rather than fixing that one
